Litter Description:

We have 5 females and 4 males ranging in color from almost white to a light fox red (All fall within "Yellow" for AKC registration). Puppies have all the appropriate drive, combined with a very calm demeanor. We bred our male American lab to our female English lab to develop what we think are the perfect combination of both styles of lab. They are beautiful-leaner than the English but not as lean as the American. They are happy and playful, great with children and other pets. They are easily trained to be a responsible family member and/or hunting companion.

Items Included: First Veterinarian Health and Wellness Examination, First Set of Shots and De-worming, 1 year health guarantee, leash, collar, food and water bowl, 1 week supply of puppy food, training whistle, blanket with their parents and siblings scent (for comfort), toy and a kennel. We will microchip upon request. Of course you also get unlimited support/guidance from us! We are there to answer any questions you may have, as well as offer training tips at no charge. Ultimately, we want you and the puppy to be happy and we want to help you raise a well trained responsible family member.

More About Labrador Retriever Breed
Sire

Duke Gunther Von Oberkirch. "Gunner" is a 2 year old AKC registered yellow Labrador Retriever. He has a wonderful temperament. As you would expect from a young male, he has lots of energy, but once he has expelled it all, he is just a sweet cuddle-bug! As you may be able to tell from the photo, Gunner is an "American" lab. They are slightly taller, with a more pronounced snout, and are much leaner than the English lab.

Dam

Questions You Should Ask the Breeder

1. Are the puppies' parents "certified"? This means that certain breeds are often at risk for genetic conditions such as hip problems, heart problems and eye problems. Most of these diseases are inherited, meaning the disease is passed from parent to puppy. Many breeders will have their dogs evaluated and tested for that disease and ultimately "certified" by a veterinary specialist to be disease-free. 

2. What are the sizes of the puppy's parents? Know how big the parents are, to get a good idea of how big your puppy will be. Is that the size dog you want? 

3. Ask to meet the dogs parents. If possible, meet the puppy's parents. Notice if they appear to be in good health and evaluate their overall temperament. Are they shy, aggressive, or well adjusted? 

4. How have they socialized the pups? Have the pups been around other dogs? Other people? Socialization is critical in puppies 6 – 16 weeks old. Proper socialization consisting of good experiences of a puppy with other puppies and lots of different ages, sizes and types of people will give you the best chance at having a well-adjusted dog. 

5. What vaccines has the puppy had? How many shots has he received and when will the puppy be due for his next puppy shot?

6. Have the puppies been dewormed? All puppies are born with worms and routine deworming is recommended. 

7. Have any of the puppies in the litter been sick? If so, what were the signs, the diagnosis and treatment? 

8. What visits has the puppies had with the veterinarian? Have they been examined and declared "healthy"? If not, what problems have they had? Have they been on any medications? 

9. What is their guarantee? What guarantee does the breeder give with their puppies? If the puppy is found to have a severe illness, what will they do? This is a difficult topic but one that is a lot easier to cover up front rather than later. 

10. Recommendations? Ask the breeder for a couple references of puppy owners that they have sold within the past year. CALL them. Find out if the breeder was fair, if they were happy with their pups, and how any problems were handled. 

11. Breeders contract? Does your breeder require a breeder's contract? If so, what is in it? Is the breeder willing to take back the puppy at any time, if you can't keep it? 

12. Limited registration. Some breeders require that you spay or neuter your dog by a certain age. If that is the case, that may not be a problem but it is best to know before you get your puppy. 

13. What is the family history? Ask if the breeder has information about the breed line. For example, ask how long the dogs have lived and what they have died from. Write it down. This may be important for monitoring your pet as he gets older. 

14. What is the breeder currently feeding the puppy? Regardless of what they are feeding, it is ideal to continue feeding the same food for the first few days at home to minimize the risk of gastrointestinal disturbances. If you choose to change the diet, do it gradually. 

15. Health certificate and certificate of sale. Ask the breeder if he will supply a health certificate for the puppy issued by his veterinarian. Some states require also a certificate of sale.

16. Does the breeder belong to a breed club? Ask for references.
